*NOTE: 1 hour prep time is for marinating the salmon. Marukan organic rice vinegar is a good option to purchase.

2. Add the salmon steaks, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag.
3. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate.
